NIH budget flat for next year

This is a really bad situation and will just make things worse. It isn't just that NIH will not be able to give out more grants. Its that a) biomedical costs have skyrocketed in the last decade and b) There are many more grant applicants now. So the likelyhood of getting a grant just keeps going down and down. I will vote for whoever can restore the NIH funding to proper levels.
